News / Events Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge Why Should I Take Part? Our Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge is the only fundraising event that we organise ourselves. Over the past eight years, the event has raised a staggering £509,000 which is truly incredible! Many of those who take part include patients who have experienced the work of the air ambulance first-hand. Others include those who want to cycle in memory of a loved one, as part of a team, or simply want to challenge themselves and support the Charity in return. No matter your reason, you can feel proud that your fundraising will make a big difference to so many peoples’ lives. Whilst raising money for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, you can also help to raise awareness of our work by sharing your reasons for taking part with others. This can be achieved by sharing your fundraising page or training updates on social media, or simply telling people why you want to support us. We also have branded t-shirts and cycling jerseys which can be purchased prior to the event and can be worn on the day to show that you are supporting the Charity. We will support you every step of the way on your fundraising journey and are grateful to each and every person who takes part for their support.
